Medical science vs liberalism

In the Herald Sun this morning there's an article about a serious eye disease (mac. degeneration, from which famous Australian authoress Colleen McCullough suffers), which can cause a progressive loss of vision. What is politically interesting about the article is that two of the risk factors listed for the disease are "gender" (being a woman) and "race" (being caucasion).

So here is more proof that race and gender are not merely "social constructs", as liberals like to claim, but have such a real existence that they influence the incidence of serious medical conditions.
